AZ BlogHop - Rx Gift Card Money

I was talking with my neighbor about my favorite subject

I was telling her that I am saving all my Rx Gift Card Money for Christmas and she didn't understand what I was talking about.  
--->Do you know about Rx Gift Card Money?<----

I'd like to tell you about a great AZ Win-Win when it comes to Coupons and Rx.

Be sure to look in your weekly ads - all of them, but KMart, Target, Safeway, Fry's and CVS seem to be the main players when it comes to Rx coupons.  
The coupon will say something like.... 

"Get a $XX.xx Gift Card for a New and/or Transferred Prescription"
Save these!!  All of them!!  You just never know when you or a friend may need them.
Once you have purchased your New and/or transferred Rx you will hand over your coupon and you will be given the amount stated on a gift card or if at Fry's on your VIP card. 
H'm...You say you have a Rx you can transfer and fill right now...   
Well Guess What? 
You are in LUCK!  
Right now *Fry's is running a promo that you can get up to (4) $25 VIP Adds (money added to your store card) for transferred and filled Rx's until 11/30/2010!!
I hope this was informative and you are able to cash in on some Gift Card Money when you'd be purchasing your Rx anyway!

*Look on page 2, bottom left corner of current Fry's ad for more information.  Fry's will take Rx competitors coupons.

AZ BlogHop - Freecycle

This week I'd like to share with you The Freecycle Network

Ever hear of it?  The nuts and bolts behind FREECYCLE is to keep usable items out of our landfills.  It is FREE to join and is an e-mail moderated based group with policies and procedures.

How does it work?  Let's say I have moving boxes that are in good shape to use again.  Instead of tossing them in the recycling bin, I would post them to the group.  If someone is interested they will e-mail me direct.  They would let me know when they can pick them up and I would let them know where I will put them for them to come pick up.  Usually the front porch is a common spot. Although the concept of this group is spectacular already, another plus is that these items that you no longer want will be picked up.  Let me say that again...these items will be picked up - most of the time the same day!

This group works both ways.  It's a Give and Take.  Let's say there is something that I WANT.  I am currently looking for a desk - a decent usable one but right now I don't want to go out and buy one.  So I posted my WANT to the group.   If someone has a desk that they no longer want they will contact me and let me know that I can have it.

I have belonged to our cities group for a few years now.  The most common things that seem to be posted are clothes - all sizes, kitchen items, appliances, kids toys, baby items, moving boxes, furniture and every once in a while computers and TV's.

So the next time you are cleaning out your garage, purging your closets, or have left over items from a garage sale, don't through it away...think of FREECYCLE

Bed Bath & Beyond

A few Deals to pass along.  I'm thinking ahead to Christmas which is only 

101 days away. 

Now is the time to start your shopping to get in on some great deals before they start marking UP the prices before the holidays. 

Varsity Snuggies are marked down to $9.99 and you can print off a coupon for $5 off HERE.  Combined that with the 20% coupon and you will be paying $3. 

If you got the store flyer in the mail today there is a $5 off/$15 coupon on the back.  If you buy 2 Snuggies, use 2 $5 off coupon and the $5/$15 you will pay $2.50 each!!

Thanks to Cents'able Shoppin! for sharing this deal and also the information that if you sign up for BB&B e-mails they will send you a 20% off coupon via e-mail.

I also spied this neat grill gadget that might make a great gift for the hard-to-buy-for-man on your list.  It's a basket to make sliders in.  Yum!

For $1.99 (reg. 14.99) it's a steal!
Let me know what deals you are finding!


I ran into CVS prepared to spend $10 and make $17 EB's...
I spent $27, Saved $120, and got $17 EB's
Not too bad considering these items will be put away for

Place these bowls in freezer before using and it will keep your food cold.

$2.99 for Child's Digital Camera

$1.99 for Kid's Microscope/lab set

$0.99 Hooded Beach/Bath Towel

I hope you find all these deals at your local CVS too!!  Let me know what you find!!

Stocking Up on Cleaning Supplies

Safeway Cleaning Products = Great Deal!!

Here's the deal.  Buy $15 worth of participating products and get back a catalina for $5 off your next order until 9/28! (OYNO)  But...if you buy Scrubbing Bubbles you will ALSO get a $2 OYNO for every two you buy until 10/3!!

The break down:
Buy 6 Scubbing Bubbles 2/$5 = $15
Use 3 $2/2 Coupons from Blinkie found in front of the products at Safeway
Pay $9+tax and Get Back $11 OYNO Cats!!
That is like getting them all for FREE and making $2!!
I rolled the deal again and will venture to a different store tomorrow to do it again!!

I also got 6 Mr. Clean Spray Cleaners.  I used the BOGO Coupons from P&G 8/29 and also 3 $1 off 1 Spray from the P&G 8/29.  The cashier had no problem allowing me to use both coupons.  YMMV pending on your cashier.  So for the Mr. Cleans I got all 6 for $4.50 and got back a $5 oyno ...but that didn't print so CS gave me Five Bucks. I'll take Money Money any day!! 

Special Thanks to Cents'able Shoppin! for confirming this awesome deal!!!

Great Bread Great Price @ Fry's

Clear out your freezers and make lots of room because while I was at Fry's tonight I stumbled upon some great bread deals!  By using the attached coupons it will make each loaf or buns $0.99 or $1.00!!  Great Stock Up Price!!  

The coupons attached to the bread all expire on 9/12/2010 so while you are doing the Cart Buster deals, you might want to take a spin down the bread isle.  The coupons also say Do Not Double but all mine did.  This will be a YMMV pending on your cashier.


AZ BlogHop - $1 Day Thursday!!

It's Thursday which means two things.  It's time for AZ BlogHop AND It is Dollar Day Thursday at your local AZ GoodWill Store!! 

If you haven't been to your local store in a while, now may be the time to check them out.  Each Thursday everything with a certain color tag or number on each item will be $1! Before you head out, maybe you have a few items that need to be donated as well!  I wonder what good items you will find!!

Living in the desert there are things that are known that just don't need to be spoken. Like for instances, summers are hot - but it's a dry heat. LOL. We have our share of backyard critters - lizards, crickets, spiders, and SCORPIONS!!

I get the heebee jeebee's everytime I look at this picture!!  My DH decided that "it would be FUN to take a black light out in the yard at night just to see if there are any scorpions".  Well to be honest I learned something about myself that night....IGNORANCE IS BLISS!!

AZ BlogHop - A Cooking Tip

With the electric bills so high this time of year to keep our homes cool, turning on the stove can be somewhat of a challenge for some.  (ME!)  I am always looking for ways to eat a nice meal with my family but use as little electricity as possible.

Luckily a former Arizonian and current NY blog writer (Precious) has shared some wonderful money-saving tips to keep the electric bills low and the kitchen cool during these summer months.  I'd like to share one with you that I have used and it has changed the way I will forever cook pasta!!

- When I am cooking rice or pasta where water or ingredients have to be brought to a boil and then simmered, I bring to a boil, cover the pot, turn off the heat and just let it sit the required 15-20 minutes to finish cooking. Perfect rice or pasta every time.  - Precious @ Frugal Makes Cents

By following her tip, this is by far the best my spaghetti has ever turned out!!  It is definitely a WIN (yum) - WIN (save)!!  So the next time you are making spaghetti, give this a try.  Leave me a comment and let me know how yours turned out too!
